Sub-Saharan African governments have combined political will with positive action to get girls and boys into school and provide them with a quality education. The benefits of investing in education in the region are evident and the results are tangible. There is still a very long way to go, 30 million of the world's 58 million out-of-school, primary age children live in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Education is critical for development and helps lay the foundations for social well-being, economic growth and security, gender equality and peace. Prosperous countries depend on skilled and educated workers.

Samsung's Solar Powered Internet Schools Program in Africa provides a technology rich learning and teaching environment to K-12 classrooms across five countries in Africa as a pilot program.
Samsung's solar powered internet schools are located in South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal and Sudan. From 2012-2015 Samsung's goal was to reach 2.5 million children by addressing a common resource challenge faced by rural African communities, access to affordable and reliable electricity. Education helps protect workers from exploitation by increasing their opportunities.
